Dr. Andrew O'Day

In the 'classic' Doctor Who series Tom Baker narrative 'The Masque of Mandragora' (1976) the Doctor tells Sarah Jane Smith that her ability to hear foreign languages in English is a Time Lord gift he shares with her. More recently, in Russell T. Davies' Doctor Who (and in particular in the episodes 'The End of the World', 2005, and 'The Fires of Pompeii', 2008) the Doctor tells his companions Rose Tyler and Donna Noble respectively that the TARDIS translates other tongues into English. In the new series episode 'Smith and Jones' (2007), the alien Judoon's speech is translated into English by means of an assimilation device. But what happens when Doctor Who is sold abroad and translated into languages other than English?

Ut Pictura Poesis: Thinking about Representation in Late Medieval and Renaissance England, 1-2 October 2010

In his Apology for Poetry, Sir Philip Sidney defines poetry as "an art of imitation", a form of "mimesis"; he describes it as not only a "representing, counterfeiting, or figuring forth" but more importantly as a "speaking picture." This attribution of aural and visual elements to the poet's pen delineates poetry as a medium able to integrate seemingly disparate elements: a site of necessary hybridity. As a "speaking picture", poetry mirrors the visual arts by imagistically portraying the verba (signifier) or form which conveys, transmutes, or mimics the res (signified) or Platonic Idea. The visual arts, which mirror or embody the spoken word, serve to access this elusive signified.
